Intimate London Wedding // Lara & Josh

“I remember the night I fell in love with you, it was a simple night.” These were the opening words Lara spoke to Josh when reciting her vows to him, they really embodied what their intimate London wedding was about.

Lara and Josh met at University in Australia, and decided to move to the big smoke for a couple of years to follow their careers as paramedics. They wanted to keep things simple, yet meaningful. As paramedics, they see a lot of elderly couple’s wedding photos, and are really inspired by the nostalgia and stories behind them. It was their wish to have a day that would reflect those sentiments, and boy did it!

Before their big move over to the UK, Josh had been secretly planning his proposal to Lara, and had already had the ‘chat’ with her parents before they left. They travelled extensively around Europe, and Josh proposed in Barcelona, which is Lara’s all-time favourite city! Two years later, they finally got married in an intimate London wedding ceremony with their closest family and friends, who travelled from Australia to be with them.

During their ceremony at Islington Town Hall, they said their own personal vows to each other, which were so beautifully expressed! Their friends and family were clearly moved and it felt like such a special moment for everyone in the room. After congratulations were had, we took them for their couple portraits around the pretty streets and garden squares of Clerkenwell, so they could have a few moments together. The chemistry between these two was unreal, and you could tell how insanely happy they were.

Their reception was held at Bourne and Hollingsworth, in the gorgeous greenhouse room which is ideal for an intimate London wedding. These guys were two of the most special and lovely people, and we are so humbled to have captured their story. Getting married in London was the last thing they did before returning to Australia, so it makes it all the more of an adventure and definitely something to tell the kids one day!
